Laurel downs Delmar, splits the season series with the huge road win

DELAMR, Del.- Behind 20 points from Nifere Griffin, the Laurel Bulldogs defeated the Delmar Wildcats 64-60 to move to 2-1 on the year. The Wildcats fall to 3-2 on the season.

Way back in week one of the season, the Bulldogs hosted Delmar and the Wildcats escaped with a two point, 50-48 win. Today, Laurel looked for a different ending.

The Bulldogs flew out of the gate, a four point run to start the game but the Wildcats were able to keep it within two after the first quarter. The back and forth continued through the rest of the first half, Laurel took a one point lead into the halftime break.

In the second half, the Bulldogs began to pull away. They led by as many as ten in the third behind six points from Nifere Griffin and five by Kylse Wilson. With a few minutes left in the third, the Wildcats began to claw their way back. Eighth grader Davin Chandler caught fire. Two big steals and 17 second half points for Chandler brought Delmar within 2 points with under a minute to play but it just wasn’t enough. The Bulldogs hold on to take it 64-60.

Laurel returns to action when they host Seaford next Thursday the 11th at 6:30. The Wildcats host Sussex Academy tomorrow, Friday the 5th at 4 pm.
